HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The man Horry County police said stalked and harassed a woman he first met on the dating app Tinder was taken into custody on Friday.

According to online records from the J. Reuben Long Detention Center, Jordan Kelly Fleming, 33, of Aynor, was charged with two counts of stalking and one count of unlawful use of the telephone.

He was released on Friday afternoon under a $2,500 bond, according to online jail records.

Last week, Horry County officers were actively searching for the suspect in reference to the allegations.

According to police reports, the woman and the suspect originally met on the dating app Tinder in November 2015.

When the woman told Fleming that she didn’t think a continued relationship would work, he allegedly began to call and text her from false numbers, the report stated.

The suspect also reportedly sent pictures from the false numbers. One such photo was one Fleming allegedly took of the victim while she was in her home, which was then sent to her and her boyfriend.

Last week, Fleming messaged WMBF News on Facebook to say he didn't do anything wrong.

A WMBF News reporter spoke with the suspect over the phone after he claimed he was willing to meet and share his side of the story.

Fleming said he hadn't stalked or harassed anyone and that the warrant out for his arrest was just a misunderstanding. He eventually said his attorney advised him not to speak with WMBF, and that he planned to turn himself in to police.
